The Second City is known for launching the careers of comedic talents like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner and Bill Murray.

The company’s latest cohort of sketch comedians, traveling as part of the “Laugh Out Loud Tour,” will perform April 26-28 at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. In what’s become a Touhill tradition, the shows will mark the eighth consecutive season The Second City has performed its trademark improvisation at UMSL.

The performances will begin at 8 p.m. April 26-27 and at 5 and 9 p.m. April 28. General admission tickets are $31-$34. Cabaret setup tickets are also available at $78 for a table for two, $117 for a table for three and $156 for a table for four.

The show is for mature audiences.
